First Casualty

While sawing down a platform support, a beam I had paced on top of the frame (to get it out of the way) worked it’s way loose and fell on one of the LCD monitors!

X-Keys Trouble

Ultimately I had to use my wife’s laptop running Windows XP to get this thing out of hardware programming mode.  I used the following steps from

Download and install Macro_Recorder.  This installs XkeysW2k.sys in the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers folder which will be necessary when you plug in the USB device in programming mode.  You will have to specify the location when the Found New Hardware wizard pops up.

Download and install Splat_Converter.  Launch it, hit “Get Mode” and then say “SPLAT”.  Your device will no longer be recognized but you can take it back to Windows 7 running MacroWorks 3 and start programming.

I need measurements for the platform on the left side and locations to tie into studs.  We need the location of the two overhead studs done for the overhead monitor.  I guess I need some more dimensions in the plans that I drop for the door in the back.

SecFilterInheritance Off

I also had to make sure under…

Check that XML-RPC was enabled. Otherwise I was getting HTTP error 412 “Precondition Failed” which led me to this thread (thanks guys).

I also had trouble posting and seeing pages until I installed this plugin.

Finally, I couldn’t access the “Stats” until I installed the Jetpack cloud integration with
